  1. I believe the OP means the estimate from the USCIS login case page. It populates one based in your case filed date.
  2. Yes, the estimates are generally longer than your actual resolution date....unless you fall into the USCIS black hole.
  3. Wow, my friend! I am so sorry that you are still waiting! I think you have submitted posts, but have you submitted a case inquiry with USCIS?
  4. Hello all, my husband had his at the Plano event center at 7:30 am. There were about 800 naturalized from 90 different countries. Then we spent the rest of the day updating his drivers license (which was quick) then applied for his US Passport. He wasn’t thinking about applying for his passport at first, so we weren’t prepared. But next, after he gets his naturalization certificate back from the State Department, he will update the SSA and then work on mom’s visa. Phew! What a day! It’s time for a nap, but it sure is nice to have our timeline completely filled. Our four year anniversary was on the 16th, so this timing was pretty nice. I hope the backlog gets cleared out of Dallas forever!
  5. @JeanF My husband's oath ceremony will be on the 21st of November in Plano, too! Yay, VisaJourney! We made it!!!!!
  6. The interview letter finally populated. It was strange - the DHS site updated this morning about 5 am, then I checked a few times during the day and now at 7 pm the letter popped up. My husband's interview is October 19th at 6:30 am! Wow! That's an early interview date and an early time!!!! But hopefully the oath ceremony is soon!

  8. So we called USCIS yesterday because the DHS site said that as of September 14th, he had already attended his interview. The tier two officer said that his case was touched, but it was on some sort of hold. But today, I checked and my husband’s status is now “Interview Scheduled”! Yay! The DHS site hasn’t updated yet, but we will be checking it often!!

  10. My husband called USCIS today and they said that the Dallas field office did touch the case on September 14th, which is a Saturday, but they are doing some other thing that the Tier Two person couldn't see before setting up the interview. We had uploaded the copy of the green card on the 11th, so they touched it a few days after that. However, that was over three weeks ago, so hopefully we hear something this month?
  11. The weirdest thing with us - I hadn't seen any updates on the uscis.gov site. Still with the March message that the interview was scheduled - which was held in Tucson. However, since he didn't meet the residency requirement, the IO didn't conduct the USC interview. Understandable. Why did I log into the DHS site today and the status says as of September 14th: "You attended your interview. You do not need to do anything at this time"??? So a phone call to the USCIS is planned for tomorrow. We don't have any additional correspondence in the documents tab. Also, the case completion time decreased to December 2019. So maybe he's done and we just don't know? My fear is that they think they sent an interview letter, didn't update the system, and he missed a scheduled USC interview?
  12. @Natonstan Congratulations! It’s almost over for you! Hopefully your oath ceremony will be soon!!
  13. This is disheartening, for sure! Any progress with the Congressional Inquiries? They can’t just be accepting the “well, we just don’t know” responses! What about the USCIS ombudsman?
  14. Yahoo! Into January 2019? Wow! I checked on USCIS, but none of my cases are showing. The DHS site is showing, though. We will update the case with the SSS address change and international travel. Maybe that will get a bit of attention?
